Recent Caribbean property reviews

  • Don't Stay Any Other Place!

    "Just returned home after a fantastic holiday stay in Brenda's condo with our family. After exploring much of the island it was uniformly agreed that there is no better place we could have booked our vacation. The resort is in the process of adding gym, spa and restaurant facilities on site and if we were in the position to consider owning a piece of paradise the Grand Caribe would be first choice. The unit is exactly as described with beautiful views of the Caribbean from the master bedroom, a well stocked kitchen and plenty of space for the 5 of us (with one person on the pull out couch - typically (un)comfortable). The resort is the perfect distance from San Pedro and we even walked into town a couple of times (a 45 minute walk) instead of using the water taxi or golf cart. The staff was helpful and friendly at all times and go out of their way to assist in carrying groceries or making reservations. But it does seem that all of the islanders share this welcoming attitude. You can not pass anyone without getting a wave or "hello". The food was uniformly wonderful everywhere we ate although Aji right next door to Grand Caribe is beautiful amidst the palms and twinkling lights. And Melt Café for breakfast has great huevos rancheros."

  • Serenity

    "According to the dictionary the word "serenity" is a noun. It means the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; sereneness. This description describes the home, Serenity in White Sound, Elbow Cay, Bahamas perfectly. Our family discovered this beautiful rental home through VRBO a couple of summers ago. We have been visiting Hopetown with our three daughters ever since they were little girls, now they are all teenagers. Our family has rented Serenity for a couple of weeks each summer for several summers now. As soon as you arrive on the property, either by boat or by golf cart, you know that you have arrived to a magical place. We love that the house is at the end of the point overlooking White Sound. It has amazing views of the water from many vantage points on the property. The grounds of the property are very well maintained with lush, tropical flora. The expansive dock is very new and in great shape with easy access to docking your boat. There are also three kayaks on the dock to go exploring the surrounding waters. As you make your way up to the house, you might pass the pool which is always one of our favorite ways we end our days from being out on the water. There is also a very large outdoor shower which makes it convenient to clean up. Upon entering the home with its multi-tiered decking, you will see the beautiful, European style kitchen with its high end appliances. The décor is spectacular with hand painted flatware and whimsical cutlery. It makes cooking a breeze. There is even an herb garden on the property that you can get herbs from. The way the house is layed out, it is perfect for our family, each daughter gets her own bedroom and then they share a bathroom. The master bedroom/bathroom is a place to relax and take refuge in. One of the things that we love about this house are the views. We love to watch the sunrise from the deck or air-conditioned cabana with our coffee and we especially love to watch the extraordinary sunsets with a glass of wine. Because of the location of this home, you have amazing views no matter what time of day it is. We also love the close proximity to some of the restaurants that are on the south end of the island. The owners of Serenity are truly amazing. They make sure that everything is in order for your vacation. They really take care of their property and want you to enjoy their home. We highly recommend renting Serenity. It is our favorite home to rent in Hopetown."

  • great location

    "We enjoyed the house, and the short swim to the great spot for viewing fish. We also enjoyed some of the opportunities in the neighborhood - Bistro de Paris, Pizza, Between2buns, Sea Cow Snorkeling, Eden Beach Caribe Watersports, Yellow Submarine. The toaster oven wasn't working, but this is a minor problem. Its unfortunate Bonaire seems to have had an increase in petty thefts and crime. The Playa Lechi wireless internet connection seemed weak at some times."

  • The Best Getaway !!!

    "Family of five. Swimming pool with harbour view. Incredible. Clean rooms. Space galore. Would be terrific for more than one family. Outdoor grilling by the pool and the harbour was a perfect way to end the day. Dock your boat right behind the house. Close to town and restaurants. Really the perfect location coupled with well-appointed accomodations. Owner on property to help with any questions you may have. Great place to unwind. :-)"

Netherlands Antilles Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Netherlands Antilles Vacation Rentals

The Netherlands Antilles are a group of islands located in the Caribbean. They enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate where the season is defined by the the amount of rain rather than the temperatures. There is little different between summer and winter except that in the summer months, there are higher levels of humidity and greater amounts of rainfall. Late summer is when tropical storms can blow through and this is therefore the low travel season. At other times of year, the islands enjoy a warm climate. The peak travel season is from December to April which coincides with the dry season. This conveniently coincides with the winter season of the northern hemisphere and is a welcome excuse for travelers from the United States, Canada and Europe to escape from the chilly winter temperatures back home.

Traveling to the Netherlands Antilles Villas

The Netherlands Antilles are made up of several islands. Each has its own international airport and good flight connections. Curacao, St. Maarten, Saba, Bonaire and St. Eustatius are the five islands. The airports on Curacao, St. Maarten and Bonaire are equipped to handle long-haul international flights and there are regular commercial arrivals from Amsterdam, Miami, Atlanta, New York City and Caracus in South America. The other islands have shorter runways which can accommodate smaller commercial aircraft. When traveling to one of the smaller islands, you can get regional flight connections. There are also ferry connections between St. Maarten and Saba that operate on a weekly basis.
